I am the daughter of a career WW2 & Korean war vet. & the wife of a Vietnam vet. Saying THANK YOU to our veterans & active duty heros isn’t enough. Every chance we get we should honor them with respect & applaud their families for the sacrifices that they themselves have to make. We as free Americans should pay it forward any way we can.

Pamela T. (Kaiser) Perry:

My father served in World War II and the Korean War, and my Great Uncle served in World War I. My husband served in the Indiana Air National Guard from 1965 until 1985. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have family that came before me to honorably serve the United States of America, my Country. I am a “baby boomer” and I find it interesting that I along with many of my peers are the “personification” of a remnant of World War II. Our family’s involvement in the military during these early conflicts left “a stamp” forever marked which had good and bad influence in our lives. I can’t tell you how much I am so proud of the men serving in the U. S. military as I am proud of the fact my husband, father and great uncle have duly served. Thank you to all men and women who have served in the United States of America Armed Forces.

Ike Cohen:
